Former Ghana international Kwesi Appiah is cautiously optimistic about his chances of becoming Black Stars coach for the third time.
Appiah says he is awaiting a response from the Ghana Football Association (GFA) after applying for the top job earlier this month.
“Yes, I have applied for the vacant role but I am still waiting to hear back from the Ghana FA,” Appiah told BBC Sport Africa.
“I don’t want to be doing interviews about the job application until I get a response.
“As we speak, I haven’t heard anything from them (the GFA).”
Appiah has twice led the Black Stars. He first coached Ghana from 2012 to 2014 and was in charge when the Black Stars competed in the World Cup in Brazil but was fired after the tournament.
He returned for a second stint in 2017, which also lasted two years, as his contract was not renewed by the football association after Ghana failed to impress at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Following Appiah’s departure, Charles Akonnor was appointed, followed by Milovan Rajevac for a second stint before Otto Addo led the team to Qatar for the World Cup.
Otto Addo resigned after Ghana was eliminated from the group stage, leaving the top position vacant.
Meanwhile, politician Sam George claims that the job has been given to former technical advisor Chris Hughton.
